1. RDP

OSWindows 10 Home

Screen14.1inch HD Display

ProcessorIntel Atom x5-Z8300 1.84GHz Processor

RAM2GB DDR3L RAM

Storage32GB eMMC (Expandable to 128GB using SD Card)

Rs: 11499
(+) Pros:

Very cheap laptop in India with a 14.1inch display. The look and feel of this laptop is outstanding and the price is unbelievably cheap. The ATOM processor and the flash based storage provides long battery life and cool operation. Comes with all connectivity options to work on this laptop from your first boot up without any trouble. Windows 10 works perfectly. There are mini laptops available with 11.6 inch display for this price. But, this one is 14.1 inch with much less weight. The battery is 10000mAH and good for long battery backup time. The touchpad is a capacitive touch type and the keyboards also works smooth. Overall this is a highly recommended budget laptop offer from a new Indian player under the Make in India scheme.


(–) Cons:

Like all the other laptops which comes with 32GB eMMC drive which needs extra storage via microSD card, you have to buy an additional microSd card for this laptop to work on it smoothly. 32GB is not at all good enough for a normal computer user. However this laptop allows you to expand the storage to 128GB via using external microSD card. It is important to expand it to store large files, install apps and to upgrade the OS itself. Also you need to buy an USB to LAN (RJ45) adapter to connect this laptop to a LAN network. There is no DVD drive, however they provide a DVD disc with this laptop with all drivers for future maintenance. These negative aspects are not at all a big issue while seeing the price.

ProcessorIntel Pentium N3710 1.6GHz Processor

RAM4GB DDR3 RAM

Rs: 21299
(+) Pros:

A good looking laptop with good features at very affordable price. The processor in this laptop is Intel Pentium N3710 which is a decent processor with good performing integrated graphics processor. If you compare it to a laptop with an Intel Core i3 5005U processor, this one will cost you about Rs:5000 To Rs:7000 less than the Core i3 laptop with 15.6inch screen, 1TB HDD and 4GB of RAM. But the performance difference is slightly noticeable for a day to day computer user. You could even upgrade the RAM upto 16GB if you need more RAM. The latest Windows 10 will run on this laptop smoothly. We like the separate mouse buttons which are not part of the touch pad for good usability. For the price, this is a perfect laptop for beginners and students.


(–) Cons:

Comes with DOS operating system and you need to install your Linux (or) Windows 10 to use this laptop. Not for heavy multitasking and gaming.
